Full disclosure: this review will not be entirely objective, because I consider the SMC folks to be my friends. After all, they created both the Dread Axe of Darkness and the Sword of Ages as exclusives for PGPoA. Fortunately, they’ve created such an incredibly awesome product that I feel no guilt in my enthusiasm. Up […]
